Purchase of a business? Take care!

01/17/17
In Costa Rica, it is not uncommon to see ads for the purchase of a business or professional activity, this is called "derecho de llave". While in Europe and in most western countries this type of sale is well regulated, this is not really the case in Costa Rica. It is therefore all the more important to exercise extreme caution in this type of transaction. We strongly recommend that you do not go alone in this adventure and have you accompanied by a lawyer specializing in this matter.
